    Lands of heroism, tyranny and false christianity

    Lithuania and the “margins” of Europe

    The aim of these two sessions is to explore the place of Lithuania within the geopolitical and social sphere of Europe during the later Middle Ages. The first looks to explore the encounters between Lithuania and the other political and religious groups that held stakes within the Baltic arena. The second session will examine the various perceptions Christian Europeans had of Lithuania and place it within a larger reflection on the image of the so-called “margins” of Europe in the Western European discourse.

    Russia: borders and limits

    Fifth doctoral conference in Russian studies

    Organisées tour à tour par différentes universités, les doctoriales en études russes, créées en 2010 à l’initiative de l’Association française des russisants (AFR) et soutenues par elle, ont vocation à rassembler autour d’un thème large doctorants et jeunes chercheurs en études russes, issus de tous les établissements universitaires français. Cette année, nous proposons, pour les doctoriales, le thème fédérateur des limites et frontières. L’enjeu est de réfléchir sur ces constructions sociales nécessaires, mais problématiques et fluctuantes.

    Jan Valtin retrospective (1941-1951)

    Il n’y a pas beaucoup d’écrivains dont l’œuvre fut aussi fulgurante et la vie aussi pleine de rebondissements que celle de Jan Valtin. Son premier livre, Out of the Night, s’imposa dès sa sortie comme le plus grand succès de l'édition américaine depuis Gone with the wind (Autant en emporte le vent) ; il fut vendu à plus d’un million d’exemplaires aux États-Unis, en moins d’un an, et fut plus tard traduit dans de nombreuses langues. Ce récit à couper le souffle de la vie d’un révolutionnaire allemand sous la République de Weimar et la première période du nazisme avait pour mérite d’éclairer la façon dont l’action des communistes contre la social-démocratie en tant qu’ennemi principal avait conduit à l’alliance objective des totalitarismes pour détruire la démocratie bourgeoise.

    Migravit a seculo. Muerte y poder de príncipes en la Europa Medieval

    El objetivo del coloquio es el análisis de la muerte como instrumento de poder por parte de las élites (los “príncipes”) medievales, desde los miembros de la realeza o la jerarquía eclesiástica hasta la aristocracia militar o el patriciado urbano. Dado el carácter multidisciplinar escogido, el acercamiento que ofrezcan los ponentes pueden ser de muy diverso tipo, y por tanto también los enfoques de acercamiento; desde perspectivas generales hasta casos particulares, que permitan la comparación en el tiempo y el espacio, pero también establecer la necesaria interrelación desde los diferentes campos de análisis. Por la misma razón, el elenco de ponentes contempla, junto a los miembros del equipo de investigación de MIGRAVIT-SEPULTUS que organiza el coloquio, la presencia de otras relevantes figuras del panorama científico europeo en sus respectivos campos, desde la historia general a la historia del arte, la musicología o la biología, para poder poner en común con ellos los resultados más relevantes de las investigaciones realizadas a lo largo de los tres último años.

    Education, teaching methods and training. The circulation of knowledge around the Baltic Sea from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century

    Cette journée d’étude s’inscrit dans une volonté de valorisation des questions relatives aux pays de la mer Baltique, c’est-à-dire les pays scandinaves (Suède, Norvège, Danemark et Finlande), baltes (Estonie, Lettonie et Lituanie) et la Russie, durant une période large, allant de l'époque médiévale au début du XXe siècle. Au carrefour de champs de recherches profondément renouvelés, la question de la circulation, par le choix de la triade éducation, pédagogie et formation, se révèle être une approche pertinente et inédite pour étudier cette région. Avec la volonté de privilégier le dialogue entre les disciplines, cette journée d’étude souhaite réunir des intervenants de tous domaines : histoire, histoire de l’art, géographie, sociologie, anthropologie, mathématiques, physique, biologie…. Elle a également la volonté de s’adresser aussi bien aux jeunes chercheurs de Master qu’aux chercheurs plus confirmés.

    1989’s contested legacies

    The challenging of ideological, institutional and (geo)political heritage

    This conference aims at rethinking the legacy of 1989 in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) through the prism of its ongoing contestations, with a focus on the current trends and deliberate political efforts that challenge the major achievements of Velvet Revolutions as well as the outcomes of the collapse of the Iron Curtain. 1989 launched a process that continues to this day. Three decades of transformations, crises and setbacks have noticeably changed the shape of Central and Eastern European societies.

    Social and Human Sciences in the Soviet Union: A laboratory of Modernity in the 20th Century?

    This project aims to revisit the history of the social sciences and humanities (SSH) in the Soviet Union, against the simplistic clichés that have long considered them as an exceptional case, cut-off from the history of modernity in the 20th century. The Soviet SSH were thus thought above all as “impeded”, without real autonomy, victims of censorship and violent repression, when it was not the whole discipline (sociology, psychotechnics, paidology, or psychoanalysis, for example) that was condemned. Intellectual innovations originating among Soviet SSH scholars were very often analyzed only as the result of their strategies of evasion, resistance or smuggling in the face of the Soviet power.

    Dissent Versus Conformism in the Nordic, Baltic and Black Sea Areas

    The tenth annual international conference on Nordic and Baltic Studies in Romania

    In the meanwhile, conformism seems to have pervaded larger categories of public in East-Central Europe and beyond and new “illiberal democracies” evolved. A composite of authoritarian leader and godfather have taken the reins of power in the area. Populist parties and movements are on the rise. Resurgent nationalisms are again offered as a substitute to solutions. The refugee crisis lingers on and no common decisions have been adopted within the EU to solve it on the basis of the European values. The EU institutions are in need of reform and decisions on the course of the organization and its future enlargement process are still pending. The conference aims at analyzing two often interrelated phenomena: dissent and conformism.

    The return of Russia and the reconfiguration of power games in Central Africa

    Dialectique des Intelligences journal no.06

    Ce numéro se propose d’analyser les enjeux géoéconomiques, géopolitiques et géostratégiques autour desquels gravite l’actuelle offensive de la Russie en Afrique. Comment percevoir le retour de la Russie sur le continent depuis le début du XXIe siècle ? Dans la compétition déjà virulente entre les puissances occidentales elles-mêmes, entre celles-ci et la Chine pour le contrôle de l’Afrique centrale dont la cécité stratégique des dirigeants est caractéristique des pays, quel apport peut avoir l’entrée en scène de le Russie ? Quelles incidences l’entrée en scène de la Russie pourrait avoir dans la rude compétition de puissance dans une Afrique centrale au cœur de convoitises des grandes puissances, occidentales et émergentes ? Les approches historiques, juridiques, politiques, sécuritaires, diplomatiques, culturelles et stratégiques devront permettre de répondre à ces interrogations qui mettent en lumière la nouvelle politique africaine de la Russie.

    Transnational dimensions of dealing with the past in ‘Third Wave’ democracies

    Southern Europe, Central Eastern Europe, and the Former Soviet Union in Global Perspective

    This conference aims to fill the gap by looking at how post-dictatorial justice and memory experiences in Southern Europe, Central Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union after the “third wave of democratization” have reciprocally affected each other. It also seeks to unpack how memorialization practices in these regions were shaped by and influenced in turn criminalization discourses in other geographical contexts (Latin America, Asia, Africa). The conference focuses on transnational activism, transfers of knowledge, and expertise at bilateral, regional or international levels, the impact of legal and mnemonic narratives outside their countries of origin, and the role of international organizations and NGO's in dealing with mass violence. The conference aims thus to trace the mutlidirectional circulation of ideas, norms and models of reckoning with authoritarian regimes both within these regions, and between them and other areas of the world.

    Criticisms of democracy, authoritarianism and populism in Europe

    Continuities and disruptions from the inter-war period until today

    Facing the feeling of »crisis« of democracy arising in recent years and symbolized by the rise of populist movements, there is a recurrent comparison with the inter-war situation in today’s political debate in many European countries. Is this comparison relevant to understand the specific democratic practices during both periods? Building on this question, the workshop serves as kick-off for the research program Which democracy/democracies? Reflections on the crisis, modernization and limits of democracy in Germany, France, England and Central Europe between 1919 and 1939 supported by the Centre interdisciplinaire d’études et de recherches sur l’Allemagne (CIERA).

    Building the alliance

    The implementation of France’s commitment in Central and Eastern Europe in the interwar period (1917-1939)

    The aim of this conference is to shed light on joint practical initiatives between France and all the allied countries of central Europe during the inter-war period to concretely build the alliance between the partners. France’s collaboration with the member states of the Little Entente (Czechoslovakia, Romania, Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes) — and of these powers amongst themselves — will be emphasized, but communications on the ties with the other Allied Powers or partners from the region (Poland, the Baltic States and Finland, Greece, Turkey), and even with the revisionist powers (Soviet Russia, Hungary, Bulgaria) are welcome.

    Hungarian cinema, fin de siècle? Histories, sociologies, aesthetics

    Le cinéma des années 1960-1980 en Hongrie a fait l'objet de nombreux travaux de recherche sociologiques et historiques. Les deux décennies suivantes ont été moins étudiées, ce que la sensation de rupture provoquée par la chute de l’empire soviétique explique en partie. La journée d'études « Cinéma hongrois, fin de siècle ? Histoires, sociologies, esthétiques (première session : 1980-2000) » vise à dépasser l’idée d’un changement radical et à étudier la manière dont les cinéastes ont anticipé puis accueilli le tournant historique de 1989. Une large place sera donc accordée aux approches sociologiques et historiques de l’art, afin de cerner les modalités du passage des années 1980 aux années 1990. Parallèlement, il s’agira de déterminer ce que l’atmosphère de « fin des temps » et de «  fin de l’histoire » qui caractérise cette période a engendré comme mutations et inventions esthétiques.

    Divided memories, shared memories: Poland, Russia, Ukraine

    History mirrored in literature and cinema

    In Central and Eastern European countries, memorial questions appeared right after the demise of the communist regimes in 1989–1991, revealing long-denied processes. The phenomenon of the rise of repressed memories along with the rewriting of history, and the political uses of the past are noticeable in Poland, Russia, and Ukraine, three countries whose histories are as often shared as their memories are divided. The “memory wars” in which these three states have sometimes been engaged since the end of the 1980s have been the subject of an abundant historiography.
